- The second tape starts with multiple flaws in the left channel that roll in and out
about every 2 seconds. Patching proved to be more invasive than correcting in wavelab
and leaving minor artifacts so this was the route taken.
- Tape flips cross faded where applicable
-This is the firs set of shows with an official tapers section as per Barry Glassberg. Healy roped off an area just in front of the board and gave Barry control over the area. Barry made up stickers to gain entry behind the barricade for the section. Needless to say he invited his friends! They used this for the run. This being said the sound is a little distant yet front of board.
- Jerry's inaudible until the first chorus in Mississippi Half Step when he is finally turned on.

The energy will make you cry!
I was 7 in 1979, but with tapes like this I can Go to Nassau and experience everything-the crowd goes berserk when they hear Franklin's, and the energy is a palpable wave throughout the first set. But the sound is good, complemented not overshadowed by the crowd when it sings along with Tennessee Jed. Oh, and the jam after Saint is cosmic to say the least. I teared up a couple of times, with a huge grin on my face, listening to this for the first time.
